  1. 1. Acute pancreatitis - Cellular response and dynamic inflammatory changes

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery and Gastroenterology, Lund University Hospital, SE-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Marwan Dib; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Veterinary medicine:surgery; inflammatory mediators.; adhesion molecules; endothelial barrier dysfunction; inflammatory response; mast cell; abdominal sepsis; Acute pancreatitis; physiology; pathology; clinical studies; Veterinärmedicin:kirurgi; fysiologi; patologi; kliniska studier;

    Abstract : Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common disorder where underlying mechanisms for the local initiating events in the pancreas, the systemic dissemination of the inflammatory response and the remote organ dysfunction still are unclear. The aim of the present study was to further characterize the dynamics and sequence of the immune response in AP, and to determine the cellular origin of the initiating events. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modulation of Inflammatory Response in Surgical Trauma

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Andreas Kvarnström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; inflammatory response; cytokines; complement activation; colorectal surgery; laparoscopy; inhalation anesthesia; intravenous anesthesia; autologous blood transfusion;

    Abstract : Surgical trauma results in the activation of inflammatory cascade systems in the body. Excessive systemic inflammation can lead to organ dysfunction in one or several organs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gastric acid secretion and gut peptides : mechanisms involved in inflammatory response

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Tobias Rudholm Feldreich; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The regulation of gastric acid secretion is complex and involves endocrine, paracrine, and neurocrine mechanisms. Among these, the interconnecting cross-talk between different gut peptides is an important part in the control of acid secretion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inflammatory response and intervention in experimental acute pancreatitis

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University

    Author : Changbin Shi; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; traumatology; Surgery; orthopaedics; signalling pathways; protein kinase C; nuclear factor-kB; leukocytes; inflammatory mediators; immunosuppression; acute pancreatitis; extracellular signal-regulated kinase;

    Abstract : Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common disease where underlying mechanisms for the local initiating events in the pancreas, the systemic dissemination of the inflammatory response and remote organ dysfunction still are unclear. The overall aim of the thesis was to study mechanisms of the inflammatory response in AP with special emphasis on local, systemic, and distant organ injury directed at different signalling pathways, and potential therapeutic strategies to prevent the development of inflammation and cell injury following AP.

  5. 5. Microvascular inflammatory response in the skin

    University dissertation from Clinical Physiology and Nuclear Medicine Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Malmö, Lund University

    Author : Vladimir Evilevitch; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering; Physiology; Fysiologi; radiologi; Klinisk fysiologi; medical instrumentation; tomography; radiology; Clinical physics; sodium nitroprusside; terbutaline; anandamide; TRPV1; skin prick test; vanilloid receptor; skin microcirculation; laser Doppler imaging; Plasma exudation; vasodilatation;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the microvascular inflammatory response in the skin. The microvascular response includes vasodilatation and plasma exudation. In the first three studies, the combined response was measured in guinea pig skin with a technique based on detection of radiolabelled protein. READ MORE
